Master the Art of Wig Styling: Your Comprehensive Step-by-step Guide to Perfect Wig Wearing

Let yourself be guided into the fascinating world of wigs. Whether you are going for a costume, want to change your style or simply want to cover the signs of hair loss, using a wig can be a perfect way to do so. You may be confused at first on how to properly position this fake hair on your head. We will support you throughout the process: from preparation to installation through maintenance for always impeccable style; thus transforming this task into an easy and fun game. So, follow these steps carefully.

Step 1: Prepare your real hair

You must first style your hair so that it does not interfere with putting on the wig. For those with short hair, no worries! On the other hand, if you have long hair, it would be better to do several small braids stuck together or a low bun. The main thing is to have a very smooth scalp for comfortable wig wearing.

Step 2: Protect your hair with a wig cap

The wig cap is a crucial accessory for wearing a wig. It’s like a protective barrier that prevents your natural hair from rubbing directly with the wig. Place the hat on your head, making sure it covers all your hair. You will find them in several colors. If possible, opt for a cap that matches the color of your wig for perfect harmony.

Step 3: Position the wig

Now for the star of the show: the wig. Before putting it on, check carefully where the front and back of the wig are located. Next, tilt your head forward and place the wig from the nape of your neck, then bring it back to your forehead. Make sure the wig is aligned with your natural hairline for a more natural look.

Step 4: Adjust the wig

Most wigs feature clips or combs as well as adjustable elastic bands at the back for the perfect fit. Pull the bands until you feel the wig is secure on your head. Adjust the clips to the side for added security.

Step 5: Style Your Wig

Go slowly with the comb so as not to damage your wig. For a natural hair wig, you can use lightweight styling products to add volume or create the style you want. If your wig is synthetic, avoid heat to avoid damaging it.

Step 6: Wig Maintenance

To keep your wig beautiful and shiny, you need to clean it regularly. Remove it gently and remove any tangles before washing. Use a specific wig shampoo. After washing, let dry in the open air, away from heat sources.

It should be remembered that wearing a wig, even if it gives a new look, a new hairstyle or reduces the signs of hair loss, requires a certain amount of maintenance for always impeccable results. So, have fun while taking care of your wig!
